About Lagoon School
The Lagoon School is the first project of the Nigerian Association for Women`s Advancement (NAWA), a not-for-profit and non-governmental educational and social trust dedicated to investing in the girl child for the good of the society. The Lagoon School started as a secondary school open only to girls on 15th September, 1995 with only fifty students. It was situated at number 75 Adisa Bashua Street in Surulere, Lagos. We moved to our permanent site in Lekki in April, 2001, with four hundred and nineteen students. Right now, The Lagoon Secondary School has six hundred and thirty two students.
This school is in response to the high demand for a school that upholds virtues and creates an avenue where teachers can collaborate with parents in their most important role of educating their children. It is a school founded on the inspirations and teachings of St. Josemaria (Founder of Opus Dei) who believed that parents are the primary educators of their children. He also believed that teachers were to work with parents in every phase of their education, giving due consideration to the differences in gender while not forgetting the proper ends Divine Providence assigns to each child in the family and society.
NAWA as the name implies, is concerned with the female-child. In Lagoon school, we open opportunities for our students to cultivate an optimistic approach in creating and fostering relationships in a humane society where each person is loved for who she is. Our students have a deep understanding of their dignity as women and their roles in the society.
The primary section of The Lagoon School was set up on 15th September, 2008 with the main aim of giving an all-round education to the female child right from the pre-primary stage. It’s academic session started in 2009 on Akanbi Disu street, in Lekki Phase 1 with one pupil in Reception class and eleven students in Year 1. The primary section, which is located within the serene premises of the Secondary School, moved to its permanent site on 14th January, 2012. We have sixty five students at the moment.
